Last evening, officers from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) arrested two suspects who extorted an Indian national over Ksh453,000.
According to the DCI, the foreigner had met a Kenyan woman identified as Mary Mukii Kioko on an online dating site on September 22, 2020. Mary is said to have later lured him to a house in Muimara estate at Imara Daima, Nairobi, where on arrival three men joined them in the room.
Jointly, the gang tortured the victim forcing him to reveal his ATM and Mpesa pins after which they withdrew the said amount through various avenues and later dumped him along Mombasa Road near Sameer Business Park. Acting on a tip-off, the DCI sleuths raided the house where the two named suspects were nabbed while two other known suspects; Benard Mbusu (house owner) and David Moses Limiri escaped over the perimeter wall.
A search was conducted in the house and six mobile phones, a PDQ Coop Bank machine, assorted ATM cards, Coop Bank Agent book, and other items, recovered. The two nabbed suspects placed in custody pending arraignment, with officers launching a manhunt for the escapees.
